If you’re fickle and often have trouble picking out an outfit before you head out, a boilersuit might just be the solution to your fashion trouble. Find a well fitted piece, throw on some accessories, grab your pair of classy high heels and you’re ready to strut — stylish yet hassle-free.
Traditionally, the boilersuit was created and worn by men working with coal-fired boilers. What was previously known as a form of protective clothing and workwear uniform is now one of fashion’s most talked-about style item this season. The boilersuit became such a popular item shortly after making its appearance on multiple designer runway shows and a couple of stylish celebrities such as Bella Hadid and Margot Robbie and Zendaya.

Acne Studios at Brownsfashion.com
Acne Studios completes this sturdy cotton design with utilitarian details such as the adjustable belt, chest and cargo-like hip pockets. This structured boilersuit could be paired with a solid tone top for a pop of colour or worn with two buttons undone for a relaxed feel. Since this one piece gives off an industrial feel, we suggest piling on a chunky cuff and a pair of sleek boot heels for balance.

Opt for this denim one piece if you’re after a cool street style ensemble. The piece is constructed with techniques used to build classic denim jeans. Expect double lapped and bound seams along with top stitching and showcasing details like rivets and jean selvedge. Another way to style up the look is to wear an inner top and have the top part of the one piece tied around your waist for a grungy vibe. For footwear, go for the latest sports sneakers or leather boots before you hit the road.
